  • cristinacost Cristina Costa, Lecturer in Lifelong Learning (TEL) at University of Strathclyde i would totally agree with that Nigel. Isn’t that just another mechanism of assessment and measurement not in line with the current times, ways of learning and engaging in learning? Audits based on numbers. and/or meant to standardise, frameworks for impersonal assessment, and the simple counting of outputs have never been a good way of measuring human experience. In short, I do not corroborate such ’values’, never did, and hopefully never will! ;-) 3 years ago

  • nigele1 Nigel Ecclesfield On the other hand, Cristina, there are values that are being imposed on learning that reinforce the idea of teaching and learning as separate processes that can be managed through procedures that are based on protocols drawn from financial audit and place a premium on the tight management of learning content and the interchangeability of particicipants and their experiences e.g. the national curriculum and league tables in UK schools.

    Terry Pratchett sees auditors as the most evil of his characters in the Discworld novels and i agree with him. We get many of the problems we have in or world when accountability to publics is replaced by the mechanical recording of activity in terms of 'cost'. We need to get beyond this.

  • cristinacost Cristina Costa, Lecturer in Lifelong Learning (TEL) at University of Strathclyde This is brilliant.
    two things I really like about this presentation and that should be at the heart of every educator (I prefer educator as it does not refer only to school teachers, but also people working in FE, HE, training, and even supervision): (1) Passion for learning (how can you motivate people to learn if you are not passionate about it and able to show it?!
    (2) context. As Prof. Dias Figueiredo recently said (something like this) we no longer live in a society that requires disciplined employers, working 9 to 5, complying with the rules of the company. We belong to a society that is screaming for autonomous workers, able to imagine, design, create and advance their and their company’s thinking and practice. That requires a different type of mindsets, namely one that bestows autonomy to create new contexts in which they can learn and practise, and this challenge themselves while doing so

    Of course this is all pretty to think of, but... how can this be empowered in real life...?!
    Many things need to effectively change and be affected. (1) the structures on which we work and learn, and, with it, its obsolete ideas of measurement (also known as assessment); (2) people’s teaching practice - educators need to understand and practice the concept of autonomy. Yielding control is not easy, especially when that is exactly what you spent half your life longing for (=to be in charge) and then get overwhelmed with it. Exercising control, policing is so much easier than providing the freedom one needs to find their feet...as that requires mentoring and listening to...! (justsaying ;-) )
    Lastly, I also think that there are some core values that are being lost such as honestly, fellowship, community feeling, trust in people etc - not surprising if we look at the examples leaders worldwide have presented us with... (cough)) - Maybe the appropriation of social media for learning can help bring that back?
    That I think is also the role of educator in helping shaping context. How do we communicate the core values of living in society - that’s indeed the first and foremost goal of education: to inspire individuals to be good for themselves and others. That will help them in the sharing, in supporting others, in wanting to learn more, in wanting to do better... after that everything else will fall into place

    we don’t know what the future holds, what is there to be learnt or done to assist us in the years ahead, yet we need to prepare for ... what will come our way. We prepare for the future by adopting such ideologies and practices in the present. After all the future has its roots in the past!

    Nice one Fred! ;-)
